  1. All are grammatical. One through five essentially mean the same thing, about being "on sale" or "bargain sale".

    Six and seven would not be seen at a shop. If the apples are displayed in a shop, it's assumed they are for sale. If they are not to be sold to customers, they would not be on display. Both statements are grammatical, though.
